K&L Notes

DuMol was established in 1996 by Kerry Murphy and Michael Verlander. Andy Smith joined as winemaker in 2000 and partner in 2005. Most of the grapes are sourced from the Green Valley appellation where DuMOL has a 25-acre estate vineyard, with other grape sources originating in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Since the beginning, DuMol has striven to make well-balanced wines. Known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnays, they also do small amounts of Syrah and Viognier. For much of the winery's existence, the wines have generally been sold direct or to restaurants. With the growth of production, we are finally seeing the wines available to retail. The 2012 Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are perfect expressions of the Russian River Valley. We are lucky enough to get a generous allocation of the wines and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

    We have been waiting with bated breath for many of the 2012 wines to hit the market and the 2012 Dumol wines are at the top of many a list. The Pinot Noir explodes out of the glass with lovely red fruits and rose petals with just a touch of clove and cinnamon. The mouth bursts with ripe red fruits, cola, cinnamon, mushroom and a touch of cedar. This is a wine with great backbone and balance, a wine of amazing grace and style. It's one of the prettiest wines I have tasted in a long time and probably the best Russian River Pinot Noir I have tasted from Dumol. Andy Smith has found the promise land with this one. The wine is approachable right away but can age for 3-5 years. Dumol followers will be very pleased. If you haven't tasted the wines before, now is the time.
